Swedish Kilim, Sweden, Mid 20th Century – This vintage signed Kilim showcases a formal geometric composition with strong right-angle motifs rendered in the most charming selection of delicate pastels. The cool white field incorporates textural variegated details that become the negative space behind the superficial tiles that surround the narrow monochromatic field. Crisp stepped lozenges set on bi-color backgrounds create a perfectly symmetric pattern that has formal lines and an inviting countrified appearance. The timeless geometric decorations allow the cool eggshell white backdrop to peek through and intensify the dramatic interplay between the monochromatic ground and simplistic geometric decorations. Chic celery green borders and soft pastel colors create a magical effect that has a verdant spring-like appearance.
